Can we stop dropping Eriksen to the bench now please?

Can we stop dropping Eriksen to the bench now please?


A week ago we published an article suggesting that next year’s Tottenham coach build his team around Christian Eriksen and from the reaction we got in the comments, it seems most of you agree. The Dane was pretty much unchallenged as our Man of the Match and his performance against Southampton on Sunday drew praise from current boss Tim Sherwood.

“Christian gets himself in positions to score goals and possesses real quality. He affects the game, doesn’t just take part in it, even with that pass to Gylfi late on,“ Sherwood said.

It will be pointed at that his two goals were pretty straightforward but you still have to get in those positions and that’s just another positive side to his all round game. Even the touch to Sigurdsson was perfect and we were very grateful to have Eriksen on the pitch from the first whistle.

To affect the match in the way he did, Christian has to start and that’s something that hasn’t always been guaranteed. Sherwood left the Dane on the bench for three Premiership games in succession recently but surely that display has to make him the first name on the team sheet – even if it is just behind Nabil Bentaleb!



  1. Bentelab sherwoods love child!!!!! Eriksen is a must but in his prefered position please not on the left cos we have no one to play there despitr spending 100mill? Konoploynka the winger is needed as is a new left back!!! Rose is what he should be growing in SHIT!! Lennon nrrdd to go and lamela can replace him!! Toesend can be a sub eith a biy of pace when opps are knackered?? Coys get Remy he play well with soldado….

  2. I know dis got nuttin 2 do wid this but We shud try chadli up front as our main forward he holds up play jus as good as ade and his link up play as good as soldado an hes faster an better in da air den both ov dem so spread da fuckin word

  3. Eriksen was surely the bargain of the summer crop of signings. Chadli looks to be regaining the form that we signed him for. Chiriches looked to be settling in nicely. Kaboul if he stays fit is massive for us. We need 2 new fullbacks. Walker, I beleive has reached his max and he is not good enough defensively. Kane has looked very good in his recent Cameo’s, Soldado played very well without scoring on Saturday and we need to keep him. Lamela will be like a new signing next season when hopefully he will be fully fit and have a year under his belt. Next season with a bit of fine tuning and a new possitive manager and we should finally be in the hunt for the C.L

  4. Must agree with gav on the bentaleb thinking the same..why does he even get first team place with the likes of erikssen, siggurdson an paulinho on the bench. Sherwood is clueless, even plays erikssen out of position..thank goodness he knows where he should be playng or we’d be heading back to mid-table!..thanks Tim u can now leave and take your kid with you…
